The bold attitude of native prints arrives for spring
This spring (per our predictions) looks to be all about prints. Before you solid obsessors quit reading, we have some ways for you to do the print thing in a fresh new way. One of my favorites — the tribal vibe.
In the winter, it was all about tons of bold color for the native pieces. As we look forward to spring, the hues have gone the way of mellow. Like this sherbet top from Vanessa V. or the soft scarves from Jewelie's.
Those scarves are a great way for the print shy to incorporate something with a print without committing. Perfect with a white top and jeans or paired with a contrasting color. Add a couple of silver necklaces and some dangling tribal earrings and you've nailed the look without abandoning your more traditional roots.
We're also loving the tribal top and midi (you read that right, midi) skirt from Knotting Hill. Both are great transitional pieces that can work now and later.
In fact, the midi is forecasted to be the new length in skirts as temps warm. So get those ankles ready, ladies.
David Calhoun and Elizabeth “EB” Brooks are the first two employees of Lafayette Central Park Inc., the nonprofit charged with turning Lafayette Consolidated Government’s 100-acre Johnston Street Horse Farm property into a passive public park. Calhoun was named executive director, and Brooks is director of planning and design.
Is it a crime for citizens to photograph, video, or take notes of a police officer in the line of duty, or a right protected by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution? Locally, such activity, as witnessed recently, will at the very least result in a night spent behind bars.
There will soon be a whole lot of shakin’ going on at Benny’s Sportshack Supplement Depot, a new concept by Opelousas native Benny Nele. Located at 2002 Johnston St., the supplement shop, smoothie bar and café, featuring hot off the press paninis and wraps, plans to open in late May.
